Album: Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored WaterReleased: 2000
This song references other songs in lyrics. It seems to be a jab at Trent Reznor with of references to Nine Inch Nails songs "Perfect Drug" and "Closer." The bridge of, "You can't bring me down" is borrowed from the song of that name by Suicidal Tendencies. The guitar part playing tips its hat to the Suicidal Tendencies song also.
Speaking to NME
in 2012, guitarist Wes Borland
recalled how he and vocalist Fred Durst came up with the album title. "I was looking at different bottles of flavored water and joked that they should make water flavored like hot dogs. It was late at night and we were delirious. Then Fred said, 'What if the band is The Hot Dog Flavored Water and the frontman is some a--hole called Chocolate Starfish? I said 'Perfect.'"
